Joy Behar: Palin a dolt because she's a global warming skeptic

What follows, coming our way via our friend Morgan, is worthy of watching, if only to hammer a couple more nails into the coffin of stupidity surrounding Joy Behar (and quite frankly, her guest):


Tsunamis and earthquakes are taking place because of global warming, and if you happen not to believe that, you must be an idiot.

How in hell does this woman have her own show? Seriously? How?

Eric:

Of course global warming is causing earthquakes and tsunamis. As the polar ice melts it changes the mass of the planet putting pressure on the tectonic plates resulting in earthquakes. The biggest concern is that the melting icecaps will unbalance the planet and cause it to spin into the sun like a top.

Palin, being the idiot she is, had no idea that her claiming the science was "bogus" means that she's claiming there is no valid science behind global climate change assessments and solutions.... because Palin the moron doesn't understand English beyond a third grade level - that's clear from the way she speaks and writes.

Steve -

The science IS bogus. NOAA uses ONE monitoring station above the Artic circle. And the country of Bolivia is listed as an extreme hot-spot, despite not having any data. They haven't entered any since 1990.

One Small Problem with the anomally map. There has not been any thermometer data for Bolivia in GHCN since 1990.

None. Nada. Zip. Zilch. Nothing. Empty Set.

So just how can it be so Hot Hot Hot! in Bolivia if there is NO data from the last 20 years?

Easy. GIStemp "makes it up" from "nearby" thermometers up to 1200 km away. So what is within 1200 km of Bolivia? The beaches of Chili, Peru and the Amazon Jungle.

Not exactly the same as snow capped peaks and high cold desert, but hey, you gotta make do with what you have, you know? (The official excuse given is that the data acceptance window closes on one day of the month and Bolivia does not report until after that date. Oh, and they never ever would want to go back and add date into the past after a close date. Yet they are happy to fiddle with, adjust, modify, and wholesale change and delete old data as they change their adjustment methods...)

The eastern side of Bolivia grades down into semi-tropical and eventually into the Amazon. More details on the climate of Bolivia can be found on this link that has a nice graphic as well.

That was from this entry - The Bolivia Effect. BTW, Bolivia is showing about 12c hotter than it should be. Why? Because they average surrounding areas!

"For the media, the IPCC assessments have become an icon for something they are not. To make sure that it does not happen again, the IPCC should change its name and become part of something else. The IPCC should have never allowed itself to be branded as a scientific organisation. It provides a review of published scientific papers but none of this is much controlled by independent scientists."

Jesus H. Christ on a pogo stick, you'll believe anything won't you?

A blogger at "unbearablebobness" admitted his blog post was an attempt to satirize Gov. Palin's beliefs, and did not reflect her beliefs in any way. Part os his post follows:

"God made dinosaurs 4,000 years ago as ultimately flawed creatures, lizards of Satan really, so when they died and became petroleum products we, made in his perfect image, could use them in our pickup trucks, snow machines and fishing boats. Now, as to the ANWR, Todd and I often enjoying caribou hunting and one year we shot up a herd big time, I mean I personally slaughtered around 40 of them with my new, at the time, custom Austrian hunting rifle. And guess what? That caribou herd is still around and even bigger than ever. Caribou herds actually need culling, be it by rifles or wolves, or Exxon-Mobil oil rigs, they do just great!"
His post concludes with the following disclaimer:

"Disclaimer: She didn't actually say these things - I made them up. But thanks for all the visits."

Then there was that moron, to use your term, Matt Damon who posted a video perpetuating this myth.

And yes, the LA Times did also by citing an anonymous source as stating that, "shortly after being elected mayor of Wasilla, Alaska in 1996, Sarah Palin stated that she believed humans and dinosaurs existed at the same time."

I was curious about this and went googling and found this:

Further, any rise of sea levels would also have effects on the plates.

I used that as an example of the anti-science thinking exhibited by Palin. She's a hard-core creationist who doesn't believe in evolution - and that same anti-science skepticism spills over into other areas for her.

It's precisely why a creationist should never, ever be in the office of the US President. They'd set our nation back 100 years.

Presented with empirical evidence that supports position "A" - skeptics will find a flaw ("B") and point to it as if it dismisses the entire body of science that supports "A".

They don't believe the science behind "A" but since they can't disprove "A" they use "B" to discredit "A".

Meet Sarah Palin. She says climate science is "bogus".... and with a wave of her hand dismisses AGW.

There is fossil evidence of humanoid and dinosaur footprints encased together. There is also a humanoid footprint atop a trilobite, so that's going waaaay back. (The "Earth Age" is relative to *what's* newer and "what" exactly is older---is the Earth newer or are the humanoids older?)

Defending *Alleged* Palin, the Book of Job describes "Behemoth" as 1) a creature large enough to tear a fisherman's net with it's nose, and 2) has a tail the size of a cedar tree.

Most preachers today claim Behemoth as being a Hippopotomus, but Hippos have hardly any tail at all. Obviously Behemoth is what science used to term Brontosaurus or Brachiosauraus. Only a dinosaur can be what the Biblical Book of Job describes. The Bible describes them as being a big nuisance to people, but unlike "Leviathon", not dangerous.

Backing that up, there was a special on the boob tube years ago about the forbidden areas of the Lescaux Caves in France. (The place where prehistoric cave art is in abundance, for those of you in Rio Linda.) In this restricted section (accessible by rappelling from a small hole atop) the camera showed a cave painting of a mastodon and a brontosaurus butting heads---kewl!)

Steve Green:

Apparently Palin's acceptance of a check for $100,000 in exchange for her reading platitudes off her left hand has made an impression on the voting public. Her support is slipping, even among those tea-types.

The percentage of Americans holding a favorable view of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has dipped to 37 percent, "a new low," in the latest national ABC News/Washington Post opinion survey.

"Although Palin is a tea party favorite, her potential as a presidential hopeful takes a severe hit in the survey. Fifty-five percent of Americans have unfavorable views of her . . ." the Post reported.

The poll was conducted by conventional and cellular phone interviews between Feb. 4 and 8, and included 1,004 randomly selected adults.

It found a "growing sense" that Palin is not qualified to be president: About 70 percent of those surveyed now say she is unqualified to sit in the Oval Office, an increase from 60 percent in a similar survey last November.

"Palin has lost ground among conservative Republicans, who would be crusial to her hopes if she seeks the party's presidential nomination in 2012," the Post reported. "Forty-five percent of conservatives now consider her qualified for the presidency, down sharply from 66 percent who said so last fall."

Just 37 percent of Republicans hold a "strongly favorable opinion" of Palin in the poll, "about half" the thumbs-up recorded when she was chosen as the Republicans' 2008 vice presidential nominee.

Only 6 percent of Democrats and 29 percent of Independents feel Palin is qualified to be president.

Not to worry, many of us Democrats plan on registering as Republicans in the 2012 primaries and we'll be voting for Palin to get the GOP nomination!

"ALL climate change science is bogus?

NOTHING can or should be done by man to mitigate the effects of climate change?"

Tell me, do you buy your straw by the bale or the truckload?

Frankly, your assumptions are nonsensical. If I get ripped off by a used car salesman, am I going to be cautious when dealing with one in the future, or should I go in and expect to be taken each time?

There are serious procedural problems with the current state of 'global climate change' science. You have authoritative papers being presented as hard science, only to find out that the most controversial items (such as glaciers being gone by 2035) are both overstated (as may possibly be gone by 2350) and badly sourced.

And you're credulous enough to believe it utterly? It seems you are, and I've a hard time believing someone as skeptical as you would swallow this whole.

If you go into the doctor, and he tells you that immediately you need to be operated on to remove your spleen, one kidney, and a good portion of your liver - when up until that time you'd been feeling fine and went in for a prescription for a sinus infection, are you going to trust what he says implicitly or get a second opinion?

If you're worried about climate change, are you going to (a) evaluate the REMEDY to see whether it's appropriate to the problem and affordable, or (b) accept whatever is proposed because "Hey, it's climate change and we've got to stop it, man!" regardless of cost or effectiveness?

I'm really starting to think you're not actually thinking through the ramifications of your opinions on these things - you're simply following some sort of script.

Steve Green:

"And you're credulous enough to believe it utterly? It seems you are, and I've a hard time believing someone as skeptical as you would swallow this whole."

Not swallowing this whole - clearly there is bad data out there - but it's a tiny percentage of the research and it does negate the underlying nearly unanimous view of climate scientists who say that AGW is real, it's significantly man-made, and that it needs to be dealt with.

If I was diagnosed with cancer I wouldn't shop around for the 1 out of 100 doctors who would tell me I don't have cancer and then declare the rest of the doctors quacks.

But that's what's happening on the right with regards to AGW. They are finding a minority opinion from right wing ideologues who are not climate scientists and embracing their views.

AND if i found out that among the large body of radiologists out there is one (or 2 or 5) out there who fudge the data and misread the images in order to pump up support for cancer research I wouldn't declare cancer non-existent, but that's what's happening on the right with regards to AGW.

"If you're worried about climate change, are you going to (a) evaluate the REMEDY to see whether it's appropriate to the problem and affordable, or (b) accept whatever is proposed because "Hey, it's climate change and we've got to stop it, man!" regardless of cost or effectiveness?"

By all means (a). But again, hacked emails DO NOT disprove AGW, and neither do the opinions of right wing hacks.

The vast majority of climate change scientists believe AGW is real.

The vast majority of cancer researchers believe cancer is real and deadly.

Both bodies of scientists stand to benefit from the public "buying in" to their findings, and yes - there are bad scientists out there playing politics with the issues, just like there are bad politicians out there like Sarah Palin who are playing politics with the issue.

You can't find fault with Al Gore and not find fault with Sarah Palin. They are opposite sides of the same coin.

Sorry, Steve. When you build a house of cards on bogus assumptions, you're dependent on no one ever - EVER - shaking the table or removing cards.

Fox was only too eager to report (and grossly over-report) the number of people attending these rallies, ignoring the racists and birther components and lying to the American people.

Well, the birthers and neocons are now arguing with each other and the party is splitting apart. It was just another Republican lie.

Fortunately, these lying Republicans don't have any other weapons in their arsenal. They can't come up with a health reform package America will buy into so they do nothing, for example. Discounting AGW is just another Republican lie.

Another interesting side effect of the warming BS is where people put their money. One of the loudest mouthpieces FOR warming is the brainless BBC - suspiciously investing their pension money in Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change.

Wrong again Steve. ... (Below threshold)

Wrong again Steve.
Conservatives have made several reasonable suggestions for the Health Plan but the mainstream news and Obama are living in their own vacuums (=by ignoring Americans recommendations)
o start over (the current proposed plan is a waste of money, unnecessarily too long-
a plan should never be this many pages)
o the plan needs a review process at regular intervals if adopted to determine if it is still needed or not or if it needs to be changed and how
o the plan should not just be an item Obama checks off his list (come on .. they invited doctors to the white house at least twice to provide their inputs and then the doctors didnt even get to discuss health care -I know this because my doctor told me. the white house asked them why they were there and were sent home)
o the current plan as bad as it is wont even go into effect for years
(if it passes maybe we have a "Hope" for reversing this poor decision by voting the dopes out)
o provide US citizens with the ability to buy policies... across state lines
o listen to the majority views on health care
and develop/improve what is already in place without spending any more of the US citizen's money
